EDINBURGH have announced that they have signed Bruce Houston of Heriot’s on a partnership contract. The Scots-qualified 22-year-old stand-off was born and raised in Ballymena.

He was previously a member of the Ulster academy, and made one competitive appearance at PRO14 level for the province, against Leinster in January 2019, before joining Heriot’s ahead of the 2021 Super6 Championship.

  1. Would it be to much to ask for a homegrown talent to get the opportunity?

    Send this kid back to Ulster, he is not a product of our grassroots and signifies what the ‘Super Waste of Time’ really is.

    • “send this kid back…not a product of our grass roots”. Pretty inflammatory and more than just a touch of ignorance. Maybe we don’t have enough home grown talent who want to commit to rugby as a career? Maybe what talent we have has a bad attitude?

      I’d be surprised if Edinburgh and Glasgow coaches don’t have a target for bringing through new blood so I’m sure they would do so if at all possible and only sign non Aryan players as a last resort
